Thinking of You

This was a fun card to create.  I used the Lovebirds die set to create this cute scene.
This is a 6-inch square card.  A piece of blue card stock was attached to the front.

Use a piece of white card stock cut 5 1/2 inches square.  Use the  5th largest Fitted Square die and die cut an opening in the center of the card.  Use a piece of white fun foam cut into a slightly smaller square and die cut an opening using the same Fitted Square die.  The foam will be attached under the 5 1/2 inch square for dimension.  Attach the Fun Foam using Clear  Double Sided Adhesive.

Use the 5th largest Fitted Square die and 3rd largest Postage Stamp Square die and die cut a white frame. Use 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the opening. Attach the die cut frame over the opening of the 5 1/2 square.

Use the Garden Scene die cut and die cut the frame and place the largest Fitted Square die inside to die cut a frame for the front of the card.  Run through die cutting machine.  Use 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach this frame.

Use a piece of watercolor paper and create a colorful background using watercolors or Distress Oxide Inks.  Cut the watercolor paper to fit behind the opening in the front of the card.  

Use the Lovebirds die set and die cut the image twice, using 100 lb white card stock.  

Attach a strip of Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the back of the 5 1/2 inch square, around the die cut opening.  Attach one of the die cut Lovebirds attaching some of the die cut on all sides of the opening.  Use the second Lovebirds die cut and attach only one of the birds, as shown.  Be sure to attach the edges of this single bird onto the adhesive on the back to hold it in place.  Use small pieces of dimensional tape on the back of the birds and some of the leaves, to help hold the design up.

Attach the watercolored background behind the Lovebirds.

Use Joset's Sentiments 1 - Celebration stamp and die set for the sentiment.  Attach to the bottom of the card.

This card is dimensional but will fit into a regular size 6 inch square envelope.
